The Utah Pride Festival awards two scholarships each year to LGBTQ and ally students attending a Utah institution of higher education.
One scholarship is awarded to a matriculated traditional student (a graduating senior from high school entering a college or university the following fall semester). The other is awarded to a non-traditional (a student who took one or more semesters off after high school before enrolling in a college or university) or already enrolled student.
Students can apply online by March 21, 2015.
Applications will be reviewed by the Utah Pride Center Board Executive Committee and chosen by April 5th. Scholarship awardees will be notified by April 5th.
Winning applicants must be available to attend the Utah Pride Festival on Sunday, June 7th to accept their awards on stage. The Utah Pride Center will provide each winner with two (2) tickets to the festival for that day’s admittance. Scholarship checks will be written to the students’ schools.
Scholarship winners’ photographs may be included in Festival promotional materials. Scholarship students must agree to allow their photos and educational information to be published.
